Why NFTs?

World-renowned Paleontologist, Jack Horner, has long-held theories of how dinosaurs should be shown in popular media and for the first time he brought these ideas to life with a set of strikingly vivid digital artworks in 2021. Jack and celebrated Paleo artist Fabio Pastori joined forces to create 10 ground-breaking and disruptive artworks that challenged existing perceptions of dinosaurs.

With their vivid colors, feathers, striking accoutrements and mating behaviors, the theory that dinosaurs were ancestors of birds could not be clearer and definitely ‘re-images’ Hollywood’s portrayal of dull green, grey and brown creatures.

In 2022, the Jack Horner’s Dinosaurs NFT team release the second Collection to celebrate the great work of paleontologists who have discovered, collected, studied, and shared information with the world on rarely found dinosaur hatchlings from six different countries.

Three NFTs have been donated to fantastic museums. We will give away seven more to other respected museums, science, or research centers across the globe to use in advancing their educational programming and fundraising efforts.

The Scientist – Jack Horner

He was given a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Society of Vertebrate Paleontologists in 2013, he is a Regent’s Professor of Paleontology Emeritus at Montana State University and a Presidential Scholar at Chapman University.

The Neoteny Collection – Explained

Jack Horner’s Dinosaurs – The Neoteny Collection features six different dinosaur species, each species presenting themselves as five unique characters with fun and individual personalities, adding to their collectible appeal.

In collaboration with the award-winning Disney and paleo artist, Phil Wilson, Jack Horner’s Dinosaurs is bringing a comical, cartoonish, and rare approach to authentic dinosaurs!

Neoteny is a biological feature of newborns and young creatures which causes their parents to nurture them until they are ready to go into the world on their own. Jack Horner says: “Neotenous = extremely cute!”

As the discoverer of the first dinosaur eggs and embryos in the Western Hemisphere, and the first paleontologist to theorize about the first evidence of colonial nesting and parental care among dinosaurs, Jack loves neotenous dinosaur babies!

The Artist – Phil Wilson

Phil Wilson’s working style ranges from cartoon to photo-realism in all kinds of media. He has won many awards for film and illustration work including his specialties of classic Disney character art and scientifically accurate dinosaur illustration.

Growing up loving dinosaurs, Phil has never lost his fascination with them. In the late 1980s, he jumped at the chance to work on the illustrations for Jack Horner’s magazine articles ‘Dino-Speak’ in Wild Outdoor World Magazine. As Jack developed his theories, Phil won the Educational Press Association of America’s Distinguished Achievement Award two years running.

Phil has illustrated 75 children’s books and nine original Disney characters, created an award-winning animated TV special for children, won numerous gallery show awards and ADDY’s, and has been inducted into two halls of fame for his amazing work.

Fabio Pastori

The Artist – Fabio Pastori

Fabio Pastori has long believed that the most effective communication strategies are visual.

Drawing his first dinosaur at four years old, Fabio began to seriously apply himself to drawing the Dinosauria in the ‘80s. He is now among the most accomplished of modern paleoartists. His striking stylistic personality made itself felt in his audacious perspectives, extreme three-dimensionality and, in particular, in his daring use of bright, vivid colors. In those days, no one was illustrating dinosaurs the way Pastori did. In making his creatures both colorful and dynamic, Pastori seemed to endow them with a soul.

Transformed by new scientific findings and, particularly, his close collaboration with Jack Horner, Fabio is continuing to push the boundaries so the world can see dinosaurs just as he always has.
